Can anyone suggest a good pillow for fibromyalgia. I have it worst in my neck and shoulders and am struggling to find decent firm pillow. At moment using sealy posturepedic pillow but its losing its shape a bit. I have tried a lot and wasted a lot of money.

Not sure about a pillow for your neck but i use a bolster pillow to help me sleep and lie with it next to me to support all my body. When my back really hurts in the night i use it to wrap around my neck to help me with sleeping upright. My husbands memory foam pillow is too hard and is too uncomfortable.

Lorrapaw, for neck and shoulder support, they recommend firm support, particularly if pain is within the cervical area and radiating out to other regions. I use the curved pillows you get, it was recommended to me by my physio.

Lidl currently have some in store this week for £7.99 here is the link http://www.lidl.co.uk/en/our-offers-2491.htm?id=1074

I recommeded them to my mother too, as we both have cervical issues. [Only time I change pillows is when migraining, as I need to elevate and soften the pillow to reduse pressure pain] They take about 2-3 weeks to get used too, especially if your used to just normal shaped pillows. Its reduced my neck and shoulder pain and the number of trapezium strains and spasms I used to get, meaning less episodes of having to use a support collar and no more suffering weeks of pain. Additionally its aided in reducing the number of migraines attacks and cervical headaches I used to get too.

Highly recommend, I got mine from lidl, cant fault them.

Hope this is helpful.

Hi! I too get a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders and I sleep on a buckwheat pillow- i got mine from amazon and you can add/ remove the filling according to what support you need. It's especially good for sleeping on your side and mounds to the shape of your body (like a beanbag.) It has made such a difference. I hope you find the right pillow- sleep is so important.
